Van Oss Presides, Tells History of Contest De Graff, Ross, Burrows Make Close Decision Most attentive, the audience was held in their seats by performance of the freshmen and sophomore girls in their annual competition for the Nykerk Cup, Monday, November 20th at 8:00 p. m. in the Woman's Literary Club. Although the freshmen defeated the sophomores, the program was one ol the most entertaining given in the Cup's history. Both groups are to be commended for their ability, keen enthusiasm and fine sportsmanship. Joyce Van Oss presided at the event, which opened with the singing ot the Star Spangled Banner. She gave a short resume of the history of the Cup, given by Dr. Nykerk, former head of Hope's English Department. It was at his suggestion that the contest was first held. The need arose when the co-eds of ten years ago wished to claim distinction in some kind ot competition, as the men did in the annual "pull".

Sixth War Loan Drive Spurs Hope Bond Sales Monday marked the opening of the Sixth War Loan Drive. The personnel of Hope College thus f a r has bought $646.46 worth of bonds and stamps. There are, however, three important parts of our jeep still lacking, the body, axle, and t r a n s f e r case. By the end of the semester we hope to have attainec our goal of $1,165.

The Pan-Hellenic Board, realizing that the matter was so significant as to warrant the attention of all of the co-eds, chose to have the girls themselves give their opinions. Divided into classes, Senior leader, Myra Kleis; Junior leader, Jayne Smies; Sophomore leader, Evelyn Shiffner; Freshman leader, Constance Crawford, everyone had the opportunity of expressing herself free from sorority dictation.

Scalpel Club Hears of Burn Treatment

First Y Skating Party of Season Held; Dr. Blocker t o Speak at Y M Meeting

Missionary Directs Recreation; Speaks






Howdy snake! Dig for the Oyster —Dive for the Clam! were the calls heard last night in Hope Church when Rev. and Mrs. William Huntsman of Kentucky directed the young people in typical mountain play. Rev. Huntsman is pastor of the Reformed Church in McKee and director of recreations for the Jackson County mission. A f t e r a supper which was sponsored by the Women's Aid Society of Hope Church, Rev. Huntsman spoke on the subject, "A County Learning to Play." He stated that before we misjudge the people of Kentucky and consider them unemotional, l a z y , and stolid, we must remember their background. Since their, arrival in this country they have been practically isolated in the hills with little contact with the world, and as a result they have been too busy with the necessities of life to have time to enjoy it in play. " I t is not necessary to teach play to the people, but only to release it," added Rev. Huntsman. A f t e r his talk the students organized in groups to participate in Continued on Page 3

Could it be? Girls with dates — or at least skating partners? M. Lou Hemmes finds it quite amusing while Dick Hine and Doris Fredricks indulge in a little weighty conversation. Although some students returned quite disfigured and discolored, other Hopeites had a very enjoyable evening at the Virginia Park roller skating rink Saturday, November 11, where the YW and YM held their All-College skating party. The party lasted from 8 o'clock to 11 o'clock. Preceding and following the party the students gave impromptu serenades, punctuating the music with a few discords when the truck on which they were riding rounded a corner or slowed for a red light. Chaperones f o r the party were Professor and Mrs. Albert Lampen and Professor and Mrs. Garrett

The contest was chosen a s a more dignified way of expression. Joyce then introduced the respective numbers. First on the program was the freshman oration by Gretchen Bruins. In speaking on "The Human Cost of Victory" she pointed out the cost and absolute necessity of helping manned G. I. Joes find their places in civilian life as they return f r o m the war. Sophs give "The Rehearsal" P o r t r a y i n g the cast of "The Rehearsal" by Gertrude Allen, given by the sophomores, were Esther Bogart, Marian Reus, Martha Felton, Ann Fikse, Barbara Bilkert and Glenna Gore. The story dealt with the difficulties all would-be " d r a m a t i s t s " encounter.

. . . For Thine is the Kingdom' ^ FdVThftte is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory'flfrever." As the ajighty words of this prayer roll through our minds, as w # s e e in our t h o u g h ^ the majesty of this picture and then tne finiteness and tin* chaos of this mortal universe, we remain with bowed heads, our humbled hearts pulsating in that surge of feeling which floods our very beings with thanksgiving and with praise — Thanksgiving and Praise. And yet tomorrow is Jlie day of elaborate turkey dinners; fdotbatl" games; a chance' to realize that one ambition of sleeping all morning; a r day to write letters, be lazy, begin or finish a term papeu, catich up on the n-th installment of the continued story. Luxury, plenty, apparent security — these are the big things, the important things for you and me. Not for you? Thanksgiving Day means more than t h a t ? We don't believe it. For days the topic of conversation has been the holiday — {he holiday. — and all the fun we are going to have. Not once has a word been expressed even half-aloud that maybe this long-awaited day is a necessity, individual and national. It is necessary for all peoples everywhere to realize and to acknowledge tl]at all good tilings come from He Who made the heavens and the earth; that He is the center of all activitv; that His position is one of a Father-Brother-FriendGuide; that we owe Him tribute because He has given us the blessing of learning and understanding the mysteries of life; and that we have to share with the whole of humanity. Our boys are giving their energy, their strong bodies, their lives; but to what avail if we stifle and strangle the spirit within us that would fill us with the determination to carry on where the power of might has to stop. It is for each of us to awaken that dormant quality called a universal soul, subordinating our own egocentric interests of Whom shall I m a r r y ? Where shall I live? What shall my occupation be? How much education do 1 need? For to stop with these is to prevent the bond of love from encompassing the needy, the uneducated, the unfortunate — all those who have been impregnated with false doctrines and unworthy standards — all those millions upon millions who need tender hands and generous minds and willing service. For to stop with these is to allow the seed to ripen into another harvest of war and hate and deathless sorrow. Thanksgiving and a Day of Praise. "Our Father Who art in Heaven", fill us on the morrow with the meekness of a Christ Who bore the sins of the world, and help us, dear Lord, as we tarry in this pilgrim land to make each day a day of Thanksgiving by giving to the world that which Thou hast endowed to us. Amen. H. M.

There A r e Such Things

. . . .

And it's mighty swell to hear about them. There are plenty of discouraging things going on. not the least of which is the election results. However, there seems to be plenty on the other side too. If the "Code", as published in the ANCHOR of October 18. is sincerely and not self-righteously lived up to by half of the coeds, then this "Code" may be classed with the best that has come from Hope in four years. Contrary to public opinion, war does not stimulate morale rightness. This is not true and must not be expected. Moreover. in the army, it is difficult for men to maintain and attain the morale standards toward which they may or may not aspire. This does not in any way excuse this lowering of standards; however, it does place before the female population of the country the harsh fact that some things may be quite different a f t e r this war is over. The very harshness of tliis fact also poses as a challenge. A challenge to those at home, to not only retain btu also improve the moral fibre of this country. Their success or failure will have immeasurable consequences. Since Pearl Harbor books and hours have been used in trying to find out "What are we fighting f o r ? " It's a worthwhile subject, and every man and woman in this country should have some answer to this question. Having decided he or she should strive to maintain that for which he thinks we are fighting. If you're fighting for a chance to make a million at some one else's expense, then s t a l l skinning you're buddy now, only don't cry in amazement when he skins you. If you're fighting for the real things of life, then do something to keep them as an important part of this great nation! Anyone living up to that "Code" if fulfilling the last of the "ifs" and living up to such-a "Code" is a rough, tough, full time job, but a mighty worthwhile one. In fact, it's a job that really pays dividends and one worth fighting for. A year ago we wrote a rather chastising article about some of the coeds on Hope's campus. Maybe that article was unfair. We hope this article is justified. If it isn't justified, the fault is not ours. Yes, there are such things, thank God. And it's mighty swell to hear about them. R. E. K.

contemporary a f f a i r s

By Miss Metta J. Ross ^ Now t h a t the presidential campaign is over, we might sit back and relax a moment before polishing our vocabularies and sharpening our wits for the campaign of 1948 were it not for a very urgent request from the President t h a t we adopt a compulsory "service" law. In his press conference Friday, November 17, Mr. Roosevelt refused to commit himself as to whether or not the law would provide for "military service"; but there can be no doubt as to the attempt which will be made to hurry a conscription bill through Congress. Any law which would take every young man for, as the President puts it, "government service," whether it be for indoctrination or for straightforward military service, should be carefully scrutinized and long debated. We cannot afford to be rushed into the adoption of a policy which would completely change the complexion of our civil, military, and political life. Here, briefly, are the arguments for and against such a law, as developed by the Civic Education Service for the American Observer, the Weekly News Review, and The Civic Leader: (1) that a large military force will be needed by the United States to protect itself and to help preserve world peace; (2) that it will improve the health of the nation; (3) that it will give vocational training to thousands of men, thus augmenting the industrial power of the nation; (4) (this is the most strongly emphasized of the reasons) that it will lessen the dangers of unemployment bykeeping one million young men in government employ; and (5) t h a t it will do for the boys what the parents and teachers have failed to do in the past: discipline the boys thoroughly. On the other side they place these arguments: (1) when the war is over we shall possess such military might as the world has never before seen; (2) a large army will not be needed for national protection, but we shall need a small, highly trained professional army, a technically trained air force, and a large navy, and f o r none of these would one year's training be adequate; (3) compulsory military training would be a poor substitute for a national health program; (4) to advocate military training as a substitute for civilian employment is a defeatist argument; and (5) that military discipline, that is, learning to take orders, is not the discipline required for successful participation in a democracy. 1 believe that too much cannot be said on this last point, and here are some excerpts from a letter written by Charles A. El I wood. Professor of Sociology at Duke University, to Senator Robert R. Reynolds, chairman of the Senate Military Affairs Committee. They strike at the very root of the question. He says, ". . . universal compulsory military training or conscription has lasted on the continent of Europe for over one hundred years . . . A f t e r a trial of more than a century, it must be evident that instead of leading to peace and cooperation among the nations, it has been the active basis of their war system and of the wars of Europe . . . every consideration of patriotism and of political prudence would dictate t h a t your committee should hesitate long before it enters upon an experiment which has so often proved the undoing of nations, and especially of f r e e governments . . . A population habituated to the use of arms and to military methods seldom has scruples against the use of armed force . . . If there is one thing more certain than another to bring to pass in this country such an event as the Russian revolution in the future, it is universal military training . . . The Russian revolution took the bloody turn it did because it occurred in a large population which had been trained to use milit a r y methods. We can scarcely hope that it would be different with us, and I think . . . t h a t the use of such methods will result sooner or later in the downfall of our republic." Speaking from the military pohit of view, here is General George C. Marshall, as quoted in T i m e ( S e p t 11, 1944, p. 17), who saya t h a t in his opinion a huge profes-

Dear G.I. Hope: You can always get the news from the home front from the other features, but this is my exclusive stamping ground. I almost lost my senior dignity running across the campus to get to physics class on time, and it was all for the sake of some tidbits of news that Dean Hinga gave me. BONZELAAR The Bonzelaar twins are in the U. of M. Med School. They haven't been there very long so the school is still in one piece. Adam McCIay, S 2/C, is a L. H. 1C (Liberty Hound). He is waiting for reclassification at Great Lakes — maybe he will be promoted to the Wolf Patrol! Capt. Doug MacGregor is the commanding officer of an HQ Battery somewhere in France. Sgt. Dale Brondyke is still in Chicago working in Internal Security. Ens. George Lumsden is a janitor of sorts — he sweeps mines out of the Pacific. Lt. Donald Van Ark recently took that fatal step into no man's land — matrimony. However, he is still carrying on his duties as supply officer at Drew Field, Tampa, Florida. Ens. Gordon Van Oostenburg isn't one of the land-lubbers — he's in the amphibious forces in the Admiralties. VOLKERS Pvt. Dave Volkers, '46, is deserting his Tank Destroyer Battalion (with the C.O.'s per.) at C a m p Shelby, for fourteen days — some people are lucky — the rest get K.P. Pvt. Jay Rutgers is sharing a worse fate — nineteen days of freedom from Camp Claiborne, La., Engineer's Corp. G.I.'s, you'll never believe it — Carl Schaftenaar really likes the army — there always were a few queers on the campus. Congrats, Carl, for being accepted for O.C.S. Good luck! Bill (I never have to study) Westrate is in Medical Technician's School at Fort Ben Harris, Indiana. KRl'M Ens. Jack Krum is watching the boats go by in 'Frisco, and hopes one will stop long enough to pick him up. Although Jack always was hail and hearty, it is a rather long swim to Tokyo! sional army would entail tremendous costs, encourage the establishment of a military caste system, and discourage public interest in military policy. He does not doubt the efficiency of a large army, but he adds that, ". . . under such a system only the brawn of a people is developed for war and not the latent leadership and genius of the people as a whole. It therefore has no place among the institutions of a modern democratic state based upon the concept of government by the people." These are voices of experience, neither of which is the mouthpiece for a pressure group. What of the voices of the young men who are now fighting on the field of battle, shall they have no voice in a matter which threatens to change the very nature of the government and the way of life they have fought to preserve and perpetuate? What of the f a t h e r s and mothers of the teen-age boys who will be the first to be affected by the proposed conscription? What of those college students, many of whom will also be affected by it? Shall their voices be heard in Congress before the die is c a s t ?

A short time ago he was the Chaplain for a contingent of men who had escaped from Holland to England at the time of the invasion of the Netherlands. These men were sent by the Dutch government to the U. S. along with some men from the Dutch East Indies to be trained in the air corps. Captain Rietjes said that he spoke more Dutch than English during the time those men were under him. This seems to be alj the news from the G.I. front for the present so I'll sign off.

The Glee Club was honored a few weeks ago when it participated In the picture being made by the OWI to be presented in the Netherlands when it is liberated. The Choir has been asked to sing N o v e m b e r thirty in a Thanksgiving program at the Civic Auditorium in Grand Rapids. There will be about 300 voices participating under the direction of Mr. Wing who directs the music in the public schools in Grand Rapids. The Choir was invited by the Reformed churches of Grand Rapids to share with other choirs of the city in giving this special program. Among the eight numbers which will be sung are the P r a y e r of Thanksgiving and Onward Christian Soldiers. The songsters will leave on the afternoon train and Ae're certain that Hope College will make a good showing. Remember how we used to gripe ibout chapel services? Well, according to many signs of approval jf late, we've finally done something to satisfy our desires. The Armistice Day program of a week ago with the robed choir and glee club certainly did add to the service. Miss Burrows' song, "Oh for the Wings of a Dove" by Mendelsshon, brightened up another of our morning services. Also to the credit of the Choir is the innovation of a processional hymn. The first few minutes of Chapel have become a period for truly reverent meditation. You all know what a big success our program with Mr. Kollen was and now there is an announcement of another musical event. On December the fourth, we will be privileged to hear a concert to be given by a Metropolitan Opera soprano. Don't forget that date.

Highlight of the event was the awarding of penalties to the "misfit" freshman. First to be penalized was Paul Tanis, who was sentenced to appear on the campus in overalls, pushing a wheelbarrow containing Ruth Hoffman, who's condemnation was to dress as a baby carrying a doll and bottle. Rules governing the burning were: one, that all freshmen must discard their pots, and two, freshmen boys are required to bring their own wood. To see that no one violated the laws. Student Council members "flitted" nimbly through the crowd.

Louise Rove's penalty was to appear on the campus for two days wearing horn-rimmed glasses without make-up on her face or her hair done up. Because of her fine oratorical ability, Kay Steketee was forced to demonstrate her ability by daintily alighting Van Raalte Hall's fire escape and orating on school spirit and freshman rules. For their misdemeanors J u d y Hoffman had to demonstrate the costume Little Black Sambo wore, and Jeane Verburg, Little BoPeep's raiment. Bob Bennett and Gracie Wagemaker for b e i n g " n a u g h t y " were also obligated to dress as fairy story characters — the Wolf and little Red Riding Hood, respectively. The 13th of this "Lucky Bunch" to be sentenced was Joan Rypstra. Her duty was to s t a r t the ball rolling — by making and distributing handbills — for the newly organized Date Bureau at the corner of River and Central.

Wc Interview Cent.


Continued from page 1 Clarence De Graff of the English Department and Miss Reba Burrows, of the Music Department. In charge of the night's events was Ruth Ellison, social chairman of Student Council. Advising the sophomores was Rosanna Atkins, senior, and their coach was Klaine Meeusen. Edith Wolbrink, Junior, was freshman advisor and Ix)uise Rove, coach. The Cup, which is placed in the trophy case in Graves Hall, will have the numerals of the class of '48 inscribed on it. For a description of the "burning of the green" which followed, see page 3.

Because of unfavorable weather conditions, the "burning" of The Green was held in the Literary Club following the Nykerk Cup Contest. Instead of actually burning them, the freshmen roll was called by Eugene Van Tamelen, and each frosh then deposited his " g r e e n " in a barrel. Those not present were taken note of by Mr. Palmer Quackenbush from President Everse. Grand Haven is the newest addition to the faculty of Hope College. He is the former concert master of Hunstman Continued the Grand Rapids Symphony, and Continued from Page 1 will be the director of string music on our campus.

Continued from Page 1 just previous to the close of the second semester, allowing the pledges to begin their Sophomore year in a society. Under the first two some kind of a Freshman organization will be set up in order to provide expression f o r talent and pent-up energies. Miss Lichty and Miss Boyd, advisors to the Pan-Hellenic Board, were present at the group meeting. A f t e r a poll has been taken of each girl's individual, thought-over, personal wish on this subject, the Board will act in compliance to the prevailing opinion.

Next he found himself sitting on the platform before the student council, his eyes fixed on a glaring light. Someone wanted him to say he was a lowly frosh. No, he wouldn't. A f t e r all, hadn't all his colleagues broken the rules, not once, but several times. Of course, freshmen are green, but not really lowly — goodness, a rule broken here and there isn't half bad. However, next day he sneaked from class to class trying to conceal the huge sign he had been forced to wear. And n o » v when really he was happy because the whole business was over, when he should be throwing the dirty crumpled green into the fire with shouts of joy, he hides it underneath his coat of remembrance of his grten freshmen days.

Dr. Raymond Resighed As History Teacher It was announced some time ago that Dr. Bruce M. Raymond had resigned his position as Head of the History Department at Hope College. Dr. Raymond had been teaching on this campus since 1925 and had made his influence felt in many ways. Dr. Raymond has accepted a position as Chief of Counseling for the Veterans Administration at Dearborn, Michigan. For the remainder of the year his classes have been taken over by Dr. Wichers and Prof. Hinga and Mr. C. Vander MeUlen, Holland lawyer, who is teaching the class in National Government.

J, Harvey Kleinheksel, Ph.D., commands respect as a chemist, generates inspiration as a professor and radiates kindliness as a friend. Both freshmen and seniors with whom he shares his experienced knowledge, find in him a most generous and considerate counsellor and attribute to his JOB-like patience their own interest and limited success in Chemistry. There you have them — the long and the short of the chemistry department.

Joe Frosh looks all around him, opens up his coat, slides his green way under his arm, and looks up at the fire. Yes, he had gone sentimental over his green, but not one sophomore may know just how •he really feels about it. He looked through the bright flames and began to reminisce. How horrid it had been. He had actually touched the ground f o r any upperclassman who wished to be acknowledged, had actually broken a date w\th that beautiful senior because he was a lowly frosh, and had actually ran up the F r a t e r House steps to hear the clock strike ten bells. Suddenly there loomed a flashing flame right next to him . . . it seemed to know that he wasn't thinking the truth.

Continued from pajje 1 of many an oral quiz or difficult class lecture. Dr. Kleinheksel describes himself as a day to day type of person, wholly unpretentious and living his conviction of the means to a satisfying life by working at the things he most enjoys, When not actively proving his unusual ability at explaining chemical fogs and formulae, Dr. Kleinheksel enjoys nothing more than to go hunting or to take his children riding.

The cast consisted of Ruth Hoffman, Ruth Bartholomew, Rose Seith, Ann Vander Veer, Helga Sawitzky and Marion Reus. T h e critic report for the evening 1 was given by Harlene Schutmaat. o DELPHI A candlelight tea was given Friday night, November 17, at 8:00 by Delta Phi. Arie Vorhorst was the chairman of the event. Invitations were issued to all of the Alumni. Mistress of ceremonies, Eleanor Everse, introduced Jayne Smies, the president, who gave a welcome speech. Marge Brouwer Lumsden, an Alumni, sang two numbers. The serious paper, the theme of which was Thanksgiving, was read by Elaine Prins, and the humor paper was read by "Boots McCann. Connie Crawford then led in the singing of the traditional Delphi songs. Jayne Smies poured, and cakes with the Delphi sign were served. The other chairmen were Marge Guyspers, general chairman; Eleanor Everse, program chairman, and Joyce VanOss, refreshment chairman. SOROSIS

Friday, November 17, Sorosis had their meeting in the Sorority room beginning at 8:00. During the business meeting, it was voted that we have a winter formal in January.

Polly (Barbara Bilkert) and Mother (Phyl Barnse) gave a dinner for Polly's three dolls: the Raggedy Ann Doll (Doris Fredericks), the rubber doll (Ann Vander J a g t ) , and the diaty doll (Lois Hospers). All dolls were dressed appropriately for their parts. The villain of the play was Ess Bogart — a small mouse trying to fit under the piano bench. A good laugh was had by all. A serious paper on Thanksgiving was done by Jean Shiffner, followed by Betty DeVries and Mary Lou Hemmes singing "Shine On Harvest Moon." The meeting was concluded by the singing of the Sigma Sigma songs, followed by a friendly chat before leaving. DORIAN The Dorian meeting on November 17, 1944, followed the serious vein that Thanksgiving in a war year demands. Dorian Frannie Koeman read the Thanksgiving Psalm and reminded everyone that although things often look dismal, there are still many things for which to be g r a t e f u l . Then Frieda Grote, in her usual thrilling manner, sang "Some Day" and "One Night of Love." Marjorie Prince read an appropriate article telling again about the origin of Thanksgiving, a truly American holiday. Pledge Joyce Van Lopik followed with a poem of thanksgiving for all the things we enjoy without really appreciating. Polly Naas was Master Critic for the evening. In closing all Dorians joined in singing the Dorian song.
